In the meantime, in order to prepare for registration you must select courses from stage I of the Philosophy Major Program.
Whether you wish to pursue a career in teaching and researching in philosophy or not, an undergraduate degree in philosophy is a good starting point to go into any number of professions or fields of graduate study, including law, government, medicine, and business. The study of philosophy enables you to acquire highly developed skills in assessment of viewpoints, argument analysis, articulacy in oral and written communication, skills in listening for the important points in any communication and a capacity to step back and look at the way in which thoughts and worldviews are framed.
Students wishing to pursue a graduate degree in Philosophy are normally expected to have completed an Honours degree in philosophy.
If you wish to study philosophy without meeting the high demands of an Honours degree in order to satisfy your interest in the discipline and acquire the intellectual skills associated with reading, writing and discussing philosophical issues, assessing assumptions and imagining alternative frameworks for viewing problems, the Major in philosophy will provide you the occasion to hone these abilities. The Major is designed to provide a sound, basic understanding of the major topics in, and historical periods of, philosophy..
A thorough training in philosophy includes detailed work in each of the following areas:
A Minor in philosophy entails requirements similar to the Major's but scaled down, thus giving more scope for elective courses.
